i swear, i get completely disgruntled when it begins to rain while i'm driving. i immediately wash my car as soon as the skies clear.

i wash my car roughly once a week. anyone else worse than i am?

I get so bad that I have to stop and clean little dirt spots that I find. My girlfriend thinks I'm NUTS. She also hates the fact that I park somewhere out in the middle of nowhere whenever we go out so people don't mess up my car.

there is nothing like the feeling of having a perfectly clean car in a garage when it is raining or snowing outside.

i do the same thing after i park somewhere. i'll get out, inspect the body, and wipe off any marks.

that's pretty funny :laughing: . but also, it can be a bad thing parking the car all by itself. sometimes, that attracts punks. if you're at a store or restaurant, don't park in the front row near the entrance/exit cuz people walk through the line of parked cars and may potentially scratch it as they walk by. that's something that i've learned not to do. i did that once. when i came back to my car, the side mirror was jammed inward because someone hit it on accident (i think it was an accident).

When I first got the car, one full wash on monday, two quick rinses on wens night and fri night. Wax once ever three months. Clean the inside twice a week. Now that the car isn't being driven and it is cold outside, once every two months.

You're right about parking it all by itself. I look at the places I'm going and decide based on the people there. I went to a bar one night and parked all the way in the back next to a brand new EVO, but left enough room so our doors wouldn't touch. I came out later and was F'ing pissed to see that the EVO was gone and there was a fist mark, complete with knuckle prints in my drivers side door. $150 later, it can't be seen, but if you get in the right light and right angle, you can see a slight difference where it was. I guess my car wasn't good enough to park next to his.

I had a little experience with that tonight. It was her choice to be my girlfriend, I didn't pay $24,000 dollars for her to be with me.

have you been down to Flordia or similar climate places. it will be a perfectly sunny day..... you wash the car then it will rain for about two mintues and stop for the rest of the day. very frustrating.:firemad:
